NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation has conducted a raid at the residence of former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda in connection with irregularities in land allotments in Gurugram. After the raid, Hooda said, “They can't silence me with this action. This is a political vendetta against me.” His son Bhupinder Singh Hooda too spoke on the same and said, “This is a political conspiracy against my father.” The CBI is also simultaneously conducting raids at more than 30 places in Delhi and nearby areas in connection with the alleged land scam. The Supreme Court had on November 1, 2017, ordered a CBI probe into the acquisition process for 1407 acre and subsequent release of 95 per cent land. It is alleged that around 1,310 acres of this land was given to private builders.
